This arm balance pose is good for stretching and strengthening the arms, wrists, as well as legs. It also gives tome to the belly, which needs to be engaged during the pose to protect the lower back and lengthen the tail bone. Purvottanasana is a nice way to stretch and release the shoulder girdle and stretch the ankles too, opening the chest and the rib cage at the same time. Please keep from practicing in case of neck and wrist injuries.
